A Calligraphic Tour of Tuscany

When: April 3rd, 2017 7:30 pm

Where: Trinity Episcopal Church, Morrison Room

Enjoy a little armchair travel to Italy! We will visit Pisa, Siena and Florence with Christine Colasurdo and enjoy some of the calligraphic treasures that are part of Tuscany’s artistic heritage. Christine will show us images of her travels and explain a little bit about the lettering styles used by monks and craftsmen to make the magnificent choir books of the late Middle Ages.

Come one, come all to our monthly member meeting! This month, we have a very special treat in store for you in the form of a presentation on Humanist Bookhand by Laura Drager.

When: Monday, March 13th
Where: Trinity Cathedral (147 NW 19th Ave, Portland, OR 97209)

Playful Letters

Drawn letters based on Humanist Bookhand, Playful Letters become 3D eye catchers. They’re so versatile, they become addictive. This script is useful for envelopes, invitations, posters, banners, and more. Beginners as well as advanced lettering artists will enjoy learning these letters.

Supply List:

Pencil, eraser, fine black pen (.5 or less), and colored pencils (a minimum of three similar colors – light, medium, and dark).
Optional: Colorless blender pencil, grey “shadow” marker, “clear star” gel pen, and a white marker. The optional items will be available for use. Paper and exemplars will be provided.

The annual International Lettering Arts Conference will be June 24 – July 1, 2017 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Registration begins July 1, 2016. Details on the conference website www.LetterWorks.org

This piece (18″x30″) is a collaboration of 18 Portland area calligraphy teachers. Each person wrote one line of the William Stafford poem and the papers were sewn together in strips. Stafford wrote this poem to honor his calligraphy teacher Lloyd Reynolds. The original piece is in the Reed College Archives as a gift from the Portland Society for Calligraphy in January 2015.
